Do you mean computer platforms, or hardware platforms? The only official computer platform that is supported right now is Ubuntu. (

ROS can be used with numerous robot platforms, some of which are the PR2, iRobot Create, Lego NXT, Segway RMP, Arduino, Beagleboard, ArbotiX, Nao, and Qbo. You can see a complete list of all of the packages available here:, there may be an existing package for your platform!

Our officially supported OS/software platforms are described in REP 3: Target Platforms.

The ROS Robots page is a good place to start if you're looking for robots using ROS.
